URGENT - New venue needed for ConVic 7

Postby Unhalfbricking » Tue Apr 01, 2008 3:29 pm

Unofrtunately, I have this minute recieved a phone call from the Bowls Club to say that they have screwed up our booking & we can't have the times agreed on. They have organised their prize presentation on the Sunday.

If anyone knows of any suitable venue, please contact me as a matter of urgency. If I don't find somewhere soon, I might have to cancel ConVic7. I've put loads more work into it this time, & really do not want to have to do this. Additionally, I cannot reasonably change the dates, as we have interstate visitors who have made arrangements to travel.

We need:
Room for 60+ gamers at tables
Preferably a kitchen
Possibly a bar

Regards
Julian
